Subj:   Re: How to load data after BMC Unload
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

You didn't say whether you are using FastLoad or MultiLoad. FastLoad on MVS does not allow a "set record" statement, so the data must be in standard fixed-length form (this is probably FORMAT EXTERNAL). Recent releases of MultiLoad allow "import ... format vartext", but the delimiter has to be exactly 1 byte. This is often a pipe (|), although I would suggest a non-text character such as x'3F'.

If most of your fields are fixed-length, FORMAT EXTERNAL would probably work better. If you have a lot of varchars, keep doing what you're doing.
